July 4th Latest updates for Google Earth imagery

Today is of course, the 4th of July and a time to celebrate everything American with barbecues, festivities, parades and of course fireworks. We always look forward to the latest updates from Google Earth and we’re pleased to tell you that new imagery is now available as of today, American’s 234th birthday.

The updates were announced today in the Google Lat Long Blog and there are some great new images for many U.S. cities. For example you can see the Goodyear Blimp off the coast of Miami, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and a place many families may well be visiting, the Epcot Center in Florida.

Further afield there’s some startling new imagery of the Yangtze River in China, notably the Three Gorges Dam. It’s not in Google Maps yet but is in Google Earth and it’s now easier than ever to look at before and after imagery by using the Historical Imagery Feature.

For much more on this and photos go to google-latlong.blogspot.com. What updated imagery would you like to see next and why? We’d be interested in your opinions on this so please do send in your comments.
